Big Uproar Planned At Live Nation


LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Live Nation has partnered with CAA and beverage maker Rockstar to produce a new touring rock fest for this summer called Uproar.

Set to kick off on August 17 in Minneapolis, the tour lineup includes Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold, Stone Sour, Halestrom, HellYeah, Airbourne, Hail The Villian and New Medicine. Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold, Stone Sour and HellYeah, all have a new album set for release to coincide with the launch of the tour.

The festival will be a one-day event with a concourse and a selection of 'lifestyle' events, including a daily wrestling tournament featuring the Detroit-based Blue Collar Wrestling Alliance. Each date on the festival tour will also feature a concourse with a plethora of vendors and other activities.

"The creative duo behind Uproar, John Reese and CAA, are incredibly talented at pulling together a stellar lineup of great bands, combined with great activities, in a fun-filled summer environment, at a great price. Our current partnership on Mayhem has been a huge success drawing more than 600,000 fans to our amphitheaters in 2008 and 2009, and given the great roster of bands on Uproar
, we anticipate another big hit with fans this summer," said Jason Garner, CEO of Concerts for Live Nation.
